Question about a Remote DRAC on a Dell Server

	We have a new Dell Server running FreeBSD9.3 and our
problem is that when trying to operate the system remotely via
ipmitool and a command-line console, The FreeBSD kernel displays
all boot messages as it should but then we lose contact because
the system wants to go to a GUI console which will not work over
a text-only channel.

	I remember discussion of a parameter last Fall, some
time, that may have something to do with this behavior.

	Does this sound familiar to anybody?

Thanks for any suggestions. This is a new problem to encounter
and appears to be the only thing wrong with the system.
